This is the perfect recipe for mashed potatoes! I have adopted this recipe as my standard and will never go back to just using plain old butter and milk. The sour cream makes a big difference in the creamy texture....(I like just a few lumps, too!) Excellent recipe, Canarygirl!
these are awesome potatoes! they are so good you don't need any gravy. i did end up using a whole stick of butter (8 tablespoons) and almost 1 teaspoon of kosher salt but other than that i followed the recipe. once you make mashed potatoes this way you won't want to go back. the sour cream makes them very creamy and gives them a slight tang. delish!
Extremely yummy! I am not good at making homemade mashed potatoes, I usually do instant, however, these came out the perfect consistency and the whole family loved them. One thing I would suggest, and of course this is a matter of taste: In my opinion they needed salt and pepper, in fact I added at least a teaspoon of salt when I was mashing and they still needed more at the table. But, I am VERY happy to have a recipe that comes out this good and I will be making homemade mashed potatoes more often! Thanks!
I'm so glad I found this recipe! For the first time my mashed potatoes aren't a sticky goo mess. :) I followed the recipe as stated (except I baked my potatoes instead of boiling them). Nice and creamy mashed potatoes. Thanks, canarygirl! :)
The best mashed potatoes on earth. I made these for Christmas Eve dinner and my family was gob-stopped!! Very smooth and creamy texture. I did add lots of salt and pepper because that is how we like em. Thanks canarygirl. Brilliant!!
I made this recipe for Thanksgiving and it was a Hit!! My husband says that these are the best he has ever had. I cannot comment on how difficult, because cooking a whole Thanksgiving meal by yourself for 13 people,means you just go with the flow.Anyway everybody loved the creamy texture of these potatoes.
This potatoes are similiar to the ones I make. I do add 1/4 teaspoon of pepper because we like the taste and also add 3 oz of low-fat cream cheese along with no fat sour cream and skim milk. It helps to keep the calories down. LOL
The mashed potatoes were awesome. Light, tender, fluffy, flavorful and delicious. Even the picky one enjoyed them. Made as written for What`s on the Menu Tag Game.
